Debra Jurss Glass: Open Studio

Debra Jurss is an artist who lives and works in Canberra. Glass is the primary material used in her practice, and she is focused on creating new ways to move the material in expressing emotion. Debra addresses the impact that natural environments have on our moods and emotions and her work is often an expression of the emotion she experienced in a specific location.

Debra first worked with glass in a Canberra Glassworks course in 2007. She then studied glass in the ANU School of Art Glass Workshop, graduating in 2013. She currently rents a studio space at the Glassworks.

She divides her time between her individual art practice, and working with the amazing community of glass artists who make use of the Canberra Glassworks.

We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
